New Information Coming[edit]

These HK decade pages are getting revamped with a ton of new info. The Imperial, Colonial and 50s have been pretty much improved drastically. The next sets (60s and beyond) are under construction and coming. Benjwong 00:13, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Hk-tvb1967.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Hk-tvb1967.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

cleanup tag[edit]

I have placed the cleanup tag on this article, as the English is rough and needs work-leave the tag until it is improved. Chris (クリス) (talk) 07:25, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Can you give us some pointers as to how this is rough so it can be cleaned up? The tag is generally reserved for articles that are a disaster. There has never been any complaints. Benjwong (talk) 07:29, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Forbetterforworse.jpg[edit]

The image Image:Forbetterforworse.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --08:25, 11 September 2008 (UTC)


it says here in the article, "Old style rice shops (米舖) in the 60s that were situated in Gaai si"

shouldn't it be "in the Gaai si" since gaai si translates into market and you wouldn't say "Old style rice shops (米舖) in the 60s that were situated in market"
